Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress I have this dress in three colors. This summer I lost the black one on vacation. So glad I could replace it! It packs well, is easy to hand wash and hang to dry while on the road, and always looks great. I think the fabric has changed a little since my original purchase, but still a great dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I would have ordered two... Seriously, the most comfortable and functional summer dress. The fabric is a dream. I wish they came in more solid colors (dark purple especially). Washes well, dries in a flash. Packs without wrinkles, what more can you ask for? (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite summer dress Soft, light fabric that helps keep me cool on a blazing summer day, stays wrinkle free in a bag, and looks cute too? I wouldn’t have believed it until I tried it. Now I want it in all the colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress Love this dress, so comfortable and excellent for taking away. Folds up to nothing and takes up no room in my suitcase. Can wear casual or dress it up with a shawl or nice sweater. So glad I purchased this. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel dress! I purchased this dress to travel to a tropical climate and it was cool to wear and did not wrinkle. I was able to wash this dress in the evening and hang it up to dry; and indeed, it dried overnight! Personally, I would have preferred to have short sleeves on the dress (a little extra sun protection for the shoulders) but overall, I liked this dress very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Dress!! This is a great basic dress - I can dress it up or dress it down. It's very versatile and also a great travel piece. I can see wearing it into fall with tights and a sweater or jacket. I liked it so much I ordered the maxi length too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! I own 3 of them! I first bought this dress in black a year ago and fell in love with it. I now own 3 of them. The fit is perfect although I did have to hem it up a couple of inches as I like my dresses above my knees. I'm 5'3, 100 pounds and bought the XS. I wear them to my twins' baseball games and they do a great job of wicking away sweat in the summer. They travel easily and do not wrinkle. Easy to wash and dry as well. Love these dresses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I've worn this dress nearly every day since I got it. Its flattering, comfy and cool. I love that it can be dressed up or down. Im 5'3", 120 lbs and got xs and am happy with it, though I think a small would have been fine too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezer III dress I live in Monticello, FL where the humidity is 98plus in July and August and this dress was the answer! Great quality, nice enough for work and wonderfully, cool material. Loved this dress so much I bought a 2nd one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is very comfortable I am not usually a dress wearer but when I saw this freezer dress I had to try it. Not only is it a beautiful color (sail floral print) it was actually keeping me cool. I think I'll order in another color. It even feels cool to the touch! And just the right amount of stretch. Love it!
Date published: 2018-07-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly great Loved the overall fit, the pattern, the material, the whole idea of it. But I think the empire waste would be too high for most. On the verge of being too high for me. I am 5’2”, 115 lb, bought medium. Small would have worked, I think, too. Just fit closer to the body, I suspect.
Date published: 2018-07-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional but not too frumpy I bought this for travel because it really folds small and has a lot of different uses (swim cover up and could be a nice-ish dress). It is a really simple black dress and not super stylish but is great for travel and dries quickly. I have the longer version too which I love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfort I bought this dress to wear in Florida’s heat and humidity. It stood true to it description for comfort, sweat resistance and style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful everyday summer dress I can’t bear to take it off! The material feels silky on my skin but keeps me cool and it’s 100 degrees today! This will be my go to dress this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love,love,love this Dress This is a great dress for anyone who likes comfort. I had it on all day it was very hot in the 90s and I didn’t sweat amazing. material is thin keeping you cool flare at the bottom giving the dress a great look. The material seems very sturdy and durable. I recommend this to anyone and have already ordered another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to hot summer dress! The Freezer series dresses are so comfortable to wear - if you're looking for a dress that looks great even when you are in extreme heat/humidity, this is the one! I now own 4 of these and they travel with me. Throw in a light cardigan for evening, and you've got a great outfit for the entire day. They are also easy to wash out in the sink and dry overnight. You won't regret purchasing one (or 2) of these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress I love these dresses! I got one last summer and I just got more. This dress is comfortable and soft, and I can relax in them. Plus it doesn’t take much room in the suitcase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite summer dress! Columbia makes great dresses and this one is my favorite! I have it in black and electric blue. It is incredibly versatile. I wear it casual with water sandals and a hat during the day, nicer sandals for a dresser look to church or dinner, and even as a swim coverup because it dries super fast! I always get compliments. The material falls and sways nicely. It is cool during our hot Georgia summers. They pack well and don't wrinkle! I do wish it had pockets, but then again pockets would be less flattering on my wide hips. I am actually online ordering another color and decided to write a review... I love it that much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress Review This is VERY comfortable and first just right! Fits true to size. The material is moisture wicking and almost silky feeling. This dress is great on the water or to dress up to run around in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice but Wanted to love this dress-the look and feel are amazing BUT it was too snug around my waistline, showing too much tummy. Had to return.
Date published: 2018-06-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! I love dresses but have a hard time finding ones that look good and are comfortable, and this is it. This dress is super comfy and flattering. The material is very thin, so it would be unforgiving of bumps, as others have noted, but in a looser fit that's not an issue for me. I'm 5'2", 150 pounds, and wear a size 10-12 pants, not particularly busty, and the large fits perfectly--it's a loose fit but not baggy. Very lightweight and soft. I wore it to work today with a light cardigan, and it will probably be something I wear pretty much all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Time This dress is very light weight, great for travel. Is true to size, it will be great for those very hot summer days. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
Date published: 2018-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, cool and fun The fabric is amazing and fairly thin so I will need to wear something smooth underneath it. I love the colors, style and fit, and that it has spf and cooling. I plan on wearing it during hot steamy travel adventures this summer, and it was perfect on Mother’s Day.
Date published: 2018-05-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Dress Cute dress that will work well in the hot summer months. Easy to dress up with a cardigan and cute sandals, but also works with flip flops. It fits well and doesn't wrinkle. It will be great for travel and meetings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical, amazing Columbia product I am never disappointed with Columbia products and this is probably the best so far! Love this dress. Great for the beach or just casual wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress! This is really a great dress. It hangs beautifully and looks lovely. I have the black color. I am 5' 5" and 140 lbs. Bought the large so that it would fit over a bathing suit if I wanted to wear it as a coverup. It is not revealing in any way and is so nice. Only one thing would make it perfect: on seam pockets! I may buy another in a different color.
Date published: 2018-05-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I was looking for a dress that was feminine enough to wear out on a date but comfortable enough to wear on vacation. I’m hot natured so the cool fabric feels wonderful on my skin. I’m average height, a size 12/14 usually, and the large is a very flattering fit.
Date published: 2018-05-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for anyone! I purchased one of these dresses last year and liked it so much I purchased two more this year. They are very lightweight, so packing them leaves a lot of extra space. They are virtually wrinkle-free, even after being stuffed in a packing cube. The way the dress falls on the body hides the extra curves and hips without looking like a sac! They can be dressed up or down, just by adding a scarf, a belt or a little jewelry. And they are very cool in warm weather. This is a great purchase for any closet and is especially good for traveling!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a winner The fit and the quality of this dress is unique going from casual to dressy by adding a cardigan. Great travel piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable This dress fits true to size and falls nicely, not too tight and doesn’t seem to cling. I purchased the blue mixture and it’s beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Dresses I have both short and maxi in this dress -- in multiple colors and even duplicates in black. I cannot convey how much I love this dress!!! Soft, comfortable, stylish and great for travel!!! Also great fabric for warmer temps :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect travel dress Very pleased with the fabric and style of this dress! It's a perfect travel dress - light, won't wrinkle and it looks great on. I normally wear a size 10 but since I would rather the dress be a tad loose than tight, I went with a L and I'm glad I did. At 5'4", the length is perfect for me. I ordered the navy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hiking dress Last summer I hiked the Vermont Long Trail in this dress exclusively...23 days, 280 miles!! It held up and I can still wear it out. Through punishing rain and climbing it functioned perfectly. I have a second one that didn't go on the trail, that is cute, covers flaws and looks great in our hot FL weather. Super friendly for traveling and packing!
